About Jennifer

Some Things Never Change Charleston, SC, mid-80s.

Writer/journalist. Partner. Head over heels Mommy to Junebug, 4 & Rosebud, 6. Feminist. Empath. Health advocate. Yogini. Charleston born, New Orleanian by choice, New Yorker at heart. Self-taught gourmet cook. I pine for my Mom every day. Life is too serious not to have fun. Feline fanatic. Fiction fiend. Khaleesi of pop culture. Budding gardener. Punny. True Cancer Crab. Fibro warrior since Winter 2018. So much more than a paragraph can sum up: aren’t we all? I turned 40 in 2018 and my life as I know it is over. Or, I’m literally 40+. My viewpoint depends on the day. Welcome to 40 & Over.

Some of 40 & Over’s imagery and general mood comes from these lyrics: “I’ve got my ticket for the long way ‘round/The one with the prettiest of views/It’s got mountains, it’s got rivers, it’s got sights to give you shivers/But it sure would be prettier with you” -Anna Kendrick’s Cups/When I’m Gone, from “Pitch Perfect” which piggybacks on a folk song from the 1930s.
